"I have two years worth of research to back it up"

That's not very much research.

This is what French theoreticians call a "bad" and/or "phoned-in" article.

Both James and Kate are fantastic people and they deserve to be left alone unless there is some sign that there was political maneuvering here. Which there isn't. Some people are changing jobs. This is a Grandma-gossip story, akin to "Deb was in charge of the potluck but Mary thought Ellen should be doing it…"

Or maybe you're just bad at making friends and project your awkward eye contact or lack of eye contact onto some elaborate racial storyline.

You're probably a little right, too. A little from column a, a little from column b.

When there's a new toy on the market, and a dozen children out of 250,000 who own the toy choke to death on it, it's promptly recalled and responsible parents make sure to keep it away from young children. Let's say the toy's been on the market for a year -- it's extremely unlikely that your child is going to choke on it. Still, most parents don't want to take that risk. The benefits of the toy are slim in comparison to the risk, however small it may be.

When it comes to dogs, that prudent wariness goes out the window for a lot of us. They cast a magical spell over us. Invariably when one of these pit bull posts sets off an argument on Slog, someone brings up golden retrievers and some study that says they're just as, or more, violent than pit bulls. This is a useful argument because nobody can imagine banning Air Bud. He's the All-American dog, and if you ban Air Bud you have to ban all dogs -- and that is never going to happen. Our anger needs to be pointed at dogs for being so goddamn lovable that they trick us into endlessly apologizing for them with every statistic we can pull out of our ass.

Which one of the three is not like the other?

Zac Pennington of Parenthetical Girls has a bit part in the Adult Hide & Seek League. He's a Portlander now, but originally hails from Seattle via Everett.

@10: Are you insinuating that police officers are being instructed to let black people they believe are murderers go free? That's a pretty big claim.

Really wish they were called Say Bye.

@8: There are plenty of right wing people sprinkled around Seattle, and they tend to just dig in their heels and think of themselves as a persecuted minority. There are probably a lot of officers who would like to live near the city, though, and we should offer them the opportunity, financially, to be able to live within Seattle city limits.
